Matthew 22


22:1 And Jesus answered, and spoke to them again by parables,
 and said,
22:2 The kingdom of heaven is like to a certain king, who made a
 marriage for his son,
22:3 And sent his servants to call them that were invited to the
 wedding: and they would not come.
22:4 Again, he sent other servants, saying, Tell them who are
 invited, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and [my]
 fatlings [are] killed, and all things [are] ready: come to the
 marriage.
22:5 But they made light of [it], and went, one to his farm,
 another to his merchandise.
22:6 And the remnant took his servants, and treated [them]
 spitefully, and slew [them].
22:7 But when the king heard [of it], he was wroth: and he sent
 his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their
 city.
22:8 Then he saith to his servants, The wedding is ready, but
 they who were invited were not worthy.
22:9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall
 find, invite to the marriage.
22:10 So those servants went out into the highways, and
 collected all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the
 wedding was furnished with guests.
22:11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there
 a man who had not a wedding-garment:
22:12 And he saith to him, Friend, how camest thou in hither,
 not having a wedding-garment? And he was speechless.
22:13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and
 foot, and take him away, and cast [him] into utter darkness:
 there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
22:14 For many are called, but few [are] chosen.
22:15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might
 entangle him in [his] talk.
22:16 And they sent out to him their disciples, with the
 Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and
 teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any
 [man]: for thou regardest not the person of men.
22:17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to
 give tribute to Cesar, or not?
22:18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt
 ye me, [ye] hypocrites?
22:19 Show me the tribute-money. And they brought to him a
 penny.
22:20 And he saith to them, Whose [is] this image, and
 superscription?
22:21 They say to him, Cesar's. Then saith he to them, Render
 therefore to Cesar, the things which are Cesar's; and to God,
 the things that are God's.
22:22 When they had heard [these words], they marveled, and left
 him, and departed.
22:23 The same day came to him the Sadducees, who say that there
 is no resurrection, and asked him,
22:24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man shall die, having no
 children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed
 to his brother.
22:25 Now there were with us seven brothers: and the first, when
 he had married a wife, deceased; and having no issue, left his
 wife to his brother.
22:26 Likewise the second also, and the third, to the seventh.
22:27 And last of all the woman died also.
22:28 Therefore in the resurrection, whose wife shall she be of
 the seven? for they all had her.
22:29 Jesus answered and said to them, Ye do err, not knowing
 the scriptures, nor the power of God.
22:30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given
 in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
22:31 But as concerning the resurrection of the dead, have ye
 not read that which was spoken to you by God, saying,
22:32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God
 of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.
22:33 And when the multitude heard [this], they were astonished
 at his doctrine.
22:34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the
 Sadducees to silence, they were assembled about him.
22:35 Then one of them [who was] a lawyer, asked [him a
 question], tempting him, and saying,
22:36 Master, which [is] the great commandment in the law?
22:37 Jesus said to him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with
 all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
22:38 This is the first and great commandment.
22:39 And the second [is] like it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor
 as thyself.
22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the
 prophets.
22:41 While the Pharisees were assembled, Jesus asked them,
22:42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say
 to him, [The son] of David.
22:43 He saith to them, How then doth David in spirit call him
 Lord, saying,
22:44 The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till
 I make thy enemies thy footstool?
22:45 If David then calleth him Lord, how is he his son?
22:46 And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst
 any [man], from that day forth, ask him any more questions.
